My daughter and I just came up with this recipe. It turned out great so I thought I’d share. I cooked up a bunch of lentils in just plain water yesterday to be used in recipes throughout the week.
- 1 cup cooked lentils
- 1/2 cup raw carrots sliced
- 1/3 cup of dry rice (white or brown)
- 1 chicken bullion cube
Fill a medium pot with water and add the carrots, rice and bullion cube. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook at medium high heat until the carrots and rice are tender. Depending on the type of rice you use and how thick or thin you slice your carrots this will take from 10 to 20 minutes. Mine took about 20 minutes.
Add the cooked lentils to the mix, heat through and check for seasoning. If the soup tastes a little week you may want to add another buillion cube. Otherwise just add salt and pepper to taste.
